Baby

A baby

It’s Film Term Friday time again, and this week’s word is baby.

Despite what you might be thinking, this isn’t a term for a petulant actor who isn’t getting everything his own way (although it works in that context, too). On set, a baby is simply a small tripod. If you want to get the camera low to the ground, you put it on a baby.

Safety disclaimer: Please don’t try resting a camera on an actual baby.
